Pokémon GO

A new event has been announced for Pokémon GO. Starting from today at 20:00 UTC until March 29th 2017 a special Water Festival event will be held. This event has Water-type Pokémon including Squirtle, Totodile and Magikarp. Water-type Pokémon will be more common in areas they usually spawn. In addition to that, a special Magikarp hat will be available during the time
Edit @ 21:46: There are numerous reports of Shiny Magikarp appearing in the game during this event. They will appear in the overworld as standard but are said to be Shiny in battle and will only be shiny for you, not for other people. Rarity for this is not currently known and there have been no reports of any other Pokémon being shiny at this time. We're currently investigating.
Edit: Confirmed that they are in the game
